Some 190 Health Promoters have attended a three-day capacity building training in Bolgatanga. The Training workshop was organised by the Better Ghana Management Services (BGMS) with resource persons from the Ghana Health Service (GHS).

The participants were taken through Principles of Disease Control and Prevention, Epidemic Prone Diseases, Diseases Targeted for Prevention and Elimination, Diseases of Special Public Health Focus, other Diseases of Public Importance, and TB Control Messages.


Madam Faustina Bezen, Regional Disease Control Officer and one of the resource persons, told the participants that as Health Promotion Officers they were very crucial to the GHS and indicated that if they played their roles very well most of the preventable diseases could be eliminated.

“The expenditure on health could be reduced or channeled to other development sector if you take your work seriously,” he said.

Mr Gaston Bozie, Regional Health Promoter, appealed to the health promotion officers to draw up their activities and integrate it into that of the Community Health Nurses when they to go to the field.

He assured them that the GHS would support them whenever they embarked on Health Promotion Education and that they stood to gain recognition and promotion if they worked hard.
